Product description

Review

Jørn Lier Horst is one of the most brilliantly understated crime novelists writing today (Joan Smith Sunday Times)

Up there with the best of the Nordic crime writers (Marcel Berlin The Times)

The Katharina Code is the best and most ingenious novel that Jørn Lier Horst has written thus far (Tvedestrandsposten Norway)

If you haven't already, introduce yourself to Norway's Chief Inspector William Wisting - you'll warm to him even though his patch can get pretty cold (Jon Wise Sunday Sport)

Jørn Lier Horst only gets better and better . . . The Katharina Code is a beautiful crime fiction story (Stavanger Aftenblad Norway)

The novel vibrates with anticipation all the way to the finish (Dagbladet Norway)

The author has employed literary devices one only rarely finds in a crime novel. And he's succeeded marvelously (Tvedestrandsposten Norway)

With The Katharina Code Jørn Lier Horst again delivers an excellent crime novel with a credible plot . . . All that remains is to declare that Jørn Lier Horst impresses again (Østlands-Posten Norway)

The untangling [of the mystery], the tactics, and the climax keep the suspense at a solid Horst level (Trønder Avisa Norway)

Jørn Lier Horst has truly done it this time . . . Exceptionally well-executed (Tønsbergs Blad Norway)

Horst invites the readers to join the investigation in a credible manner that highlights professional practices [in the police] and generates a new kind of suspense (Bok 365 Norway)

About the Author

Jørn Lier Horst has joined the elite of Nordic crime fiction writers. Having worked as a police officer and head of investigations before becoming a full-time author, Horst brings a unique brand of suspense and realism to his novels. With his books selling over a million copies in his home country alone, Horst has established himself as one of the most addictive voices to come out of Scandinavia.
